    Pros

    Interesting product, mix of techies and manufacturers.

    Some application team members resist outside consulting best practices, but this hardly differentiates them from many (most) IT divisions.

    I worked at Gulfstream Aerospace as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great hours. Great pay. Great benefits. Awesome people. I worked there in high school. I was a part of their youth apprenticeship program. I loved every minute of it.

    Cons

    Hard to get rehired. My internship was complete & couldn't get rehired. I've tried every Thursday since my internship was complete to get rehired and nothing has happened. Not even an interview.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pull the application don't let a computer do it for you.

    I worked at Gulfstream Aerospace as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Co-ops and interns get great incentives. Furnished apt. is provided at a VERY low rate ~200/month.

    Engaging program. Plenty of opportunity to network. You learn a lot.

    Savannah and Tybee beach are fun.

    Cons

    Occasional mundane tasks, slightly underpaid, co-ops get preferential treatment over interns, lack of strong work procedure can be frustrating.

    Savannah isn't for everyone. It's hot and southern.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many meetings and metrics.

    Pros

    Outstanding opportunity to apply your skills In aviation manufacturing, on a world class aircraft with a world class company

    Cons

    Sometimes, it not what you know, or how well you apply your talent, it will still boil down to who you know

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Critique your employees based on the quality of the work they do, and not on how well they interact with other members of the team

    I have been working at Gulfstream Aerospace full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pay is decent for the area (Savannah, GA).

    Cons

    Culture leaves a lot to be desired. Hard work is expected, and not usually appreciated or rewarded. Lots of talented people, unfortunately stuck because management knows they don't have employment options in the local market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start living the leadership competency model. Stop the incompetent managers from bullying to get results. Recognize the people who have been loyal and hardworking.
